Medway Regatta, 25-27 May

The 2019 Regatta will be held over the late May Bank holiday starting on Saturday 25th and concluding on Monday 27th May. The event will include the annual Medway Barge Match on Saturday and the Classic and Vintage International Championships. The racing is competitive and fun and is open to both the serious racer and those who want to compete in a more relaxed manner (class 3). There will be racing in three cruiser classes and three one design classes. We are introducing prizes for best visitor and best club team so plenty of chances to go home with a prize. On Sunday we will race the Medway Challenge Race for those who wish to compete in a single race again with prizes for best visiting yacht and best club team. If you cannot make the whole Regatta why not cruise to MYC on Saturday race on Sunday and cruise home again on Sunday. The Medway and Swale Boating Association is sponsoring the event and has negotiated a 50% discount for boats from MSBA associated clubs, marinas and other organisations entering this race as long as entries are received before midnight on Tuesday 7th May. Full details can be found at www.medwayyachtclub.com. We will be happy to find free moorings for visiting competitors.

Please note that the Medway Dinghy Regatta is another event, now called the Wilsonian River Challenge, and will be held on 1+2 June.
